Armed Augusta Man is Stabbed in Neck While Demanding Passenger Whip It Out, Cops Say.


An Augusta man was stabbed in the neck last Friday when he pulled a gun and demanded to see his passenger’s penis, according to authorities.

Jabare Jessie, 29, survived the stabbing and was taken from the hospital to jail on charges of kidnapping and felony sexual battery.

The bizarre story was revealed in a sheriff’s report:

The 22-year-old victim said he asked Jessie for a ride home from the Sprint gas station on Gordon Highway sometime around midnight Friday. But the driver made multiple stops and kept riding around. So he asked Jessie to just take him home.

From the report: “Jessie said he wasn’t going to take him home and told him to pull his penis out. He told Jessie no, that he wasn’t gay and he just wanted him to take him home. At that point, Jessie pulled out an unknown handgun and grabbed his penis and told him he wasn’t taking him home and to pull his pants down and show him his penis. (The victim) said he had a knife in his pocket and when he saw the firearm, he reached around with the knife and began stabbing Jessie in the neck four times. He got out of the vehicle and ran away, and Jessie kept driving in an unknown direction.”

The emotional suspect called the cops and told them what happened. While deputies were speaking with him, Jessie turned up at his place at Cedar Grove Apartments. The suspect claimed that his passenger stabbed him “out of nowhere” because he wanted to start fighting.

Jessie was taken to Augusta University Medical Center for treatment. He was arrested Tuesday and remained in jail Wednesday without bond.

NOTE: The Jail Report will return to stores with a new print issue this Friday, April 17.
